MEMORIAL COLLECTION 



PREFACE. 



The author of this volume was born 
on the twenty-third day of March, in the 
year 1802, in the town of Grafton, State 
of Massachusetts, North America. He 
was baptized into the Church of Jesus 
Christ of Latter-day Saints, on the first 
day of June, 1831. 

From his youth he has suffered much 
from sickness, and, since his connection 
with the Church, from persecution and 
mobs, for the truth's sake. 

He has been driven from all he 
possessed several times. Many wicked 
men have sought his life,b\il Go^ V-a^s 
heen with him. 



Moat of the hymns in ihis volume 
have been writtea under very trying cir- 
cumstances. The spirit that indited 
them would sometimes rest so power- 
fiiliv upon the author, that his sleep 
would depart from liim. 

At these limes, the words of John the 
Revelator. when on the Isic of Patmos, 
would often be impressed on his mind: 

"and he S,\1I) I'.NTO MR, WRITii." 

In this book he has soiiglil, in aU 
simplicity, to teach the pure principles 
of ihe Cospol of Jesus ChiiM. 



5 

trations of the Prophet, Joseph Smith, 

Jun. 

The words of the book are true and 

faithful, being dictated by the Holy 
Spirit of Promise, and they will all 

BE fulfilled. 

I humbly dedicate this book to the 

youth of Zion, hoping that it may do 

much good in establishing the truth in 

their hearts. 

The Author.

HYMN I. (cm.) 



1 O, Father, give me pow'r to write, 

When unto thee I look, 
A thousand songs I would indite^ 
And pen them in a book. 

2 Then I, a thousand tongues would 

need, 
To sing with one accord, 
Those sacred songs, with love indeed, 
In praise to Christ, the Lord. 

J 1 would not then be satisfied, 
I'd want ten thousand more, 



"lo spread liis glory, far and wide, 
His praise from shore to shore. 

4 When here on earth my praise i

Are returning home with speed.

To mount Zion see them o;o! 
While the rocks and hills are ringing 
With their joyful songs below. 

5 Glory be to God the Father, 

who has set his lib'ral hand, 
This, the second time, to gather 
Israel to his promised land. 

6 Praise him, for his great salvation, 

For his holy prophet's voice; 
Sounding now in ev'ry nation. 
Making all the Saints rejoice. 



HYMN 38. (8's & 7's.) 



1 Now, would the nations wish to know, 
What Mormons do believe in? 
And why they lo the mountains go, 
And theii* own homes are leaving? 

2 The truth is: Joseph Smith was sent 
Of God, our Heav'nly Father, 
To call the (lentiles lo repent, 
And to Mount Zion gather. 



The truth is: all of Joseph's land 

Is Zion'slioly mountain; 
Wliere Go<i shall cause his house t 

Wilh Life's eternal fountain. 

The truth is; all, except the Jews, 
Who wish to find salvation, 

Can flee to Zion if they choose, 
And ^in an exaltation. 

The truth is: all the Jews must go, 
And soon jn ancient splendor, 

iebiiild Jerusalem, anew, 
While God fs their defender. 




I His soul with heav'niy love was fired, 
And with the Holy Ghost inspired. 
He taught the people love and truth, 
Although he was an untaught youth. 

3 Columbia's record brought to li^ht, 
To drive away the shades of night. 
It, by Moroni's hand was sealed, 
In latter days to be revealed. 



The church of God he organized, 
With blessinjjs which the world sur- 

; He temples to Jehovah reared. 
Where Jesus to his Saints appeared, 
The priesthood pow'r on them eon- 

And sent them forth to preach his

And unto thee her tribute brings! 
Of fervent ihanks, ihy love to share. 
Accept her offering and her prayer. 

2 When we enjoy the lowest seat. 
Where Saints and holy beings meet, 
Not all the glory kings receive, 

Can tempt our feet (fie place to leave. 

3 God is the source of Zion's li^ht; 
He is her shield by day and night; 
He wards off all the deadly blows, 
In vengeance aimed, by all her foes. 

4 O Zion, that good tidings brings! 
Unto Ihy courts shall earthly tings 
Draw near, as prophets have foretold, 
And bring their crowns, their gems 

and gold.

All its bars are thrown aside. 
And its door left open wide. 

3 Thus our elder brother rose, 
Con(|uered death and all his foes; 
He will not his brethren doom 
Long to slumber in the tomb.

With himself to live and reign, 
Where with sons of God they've sung, 
Kre this world from chaos sprunjj.

Fear not death, though earth oppose;

And be baptized in Jesus' name, 
With hands laid on your head. 

4 Then, when I had his word obeyed, 

My joy could not be told;

As did the Saints of old.

The power that on me fell ; 
Light tilled my soul, my tongue was 

The glorious news to lell.

HYMN 125. (8-8-5's.) 

1 When trembling sinners wish to know 
How they may shun the road to woe, 

And have pure joy within, 
We tell them, though by men despis'd, 
They must repent and be baptized, 

And wasn away their sin. 

2 Then, if more light they should desire, 
And wish to feel the spirit's fire, 

Hands must on them be laid. 
The spirit, then, they shall receive, 
Whicn will their doubts and fears re- 
lieve. 

And give them heav'nly aid. 

3 Then, if perfection they would share, 
To Zion they must soon repair. 
And seek the counsel giv'n 
By those who stand where Joseph 

stood, 
And show to all the only road 
That leads mankind to Yxe^iVw.

HYMN 174. (C. M.) 

1 Consider all the sorrows, Lord, 

This sick one long has borne; 
Long has he waited for thy word 
To bid him cease to mourn. 

2 Though he may learn, 'tis good to feel, 

To bear his Father's rod. 

And share affliction, as a seal 

To bind his soul to God. 

3 Yet, he to thee, as thou hast said, 

Looks for thy healing aid. 
While oil is poured upon his head. 
And hands upon him laid, 

4 That all his pains may quickly flee, 

And he to health restored. 
According to his faith in thee. 
As he hath oft jmplored. 

HYMN 175. (8'S & 4's.) 

I O Father, wilt thou now draw near. 
In this sad hour.

With hands lo seaL

And quickly cleanse his sinkin;

Fearless of each earthly roe;

Shall avenge the cause of truth.

And hard the fight to win the prize; 
Rich is the feast she spreads for all, 
Who at her board of dainties call.

Though, like a diamond, oft is found 

In rubbish low, 
Or where the burning sands abound.

To gain the glorious pri^e at length.

To fight his way through scorn and 

And go ahead,

While war with error they mainlain.
